Abstract

A 47-year-old man presented to his local hospital in Peru after a generalized tonic-clonic seizure. His family reported a history of prior stroke of unclear etiology. This case report discusses the approach to a first seizure (including in tropical regions like Peru), the relationship between stroke and seizures, the approach to stroke in the young, and how to diagnose rare diseases in resource-limited settings.
